Two Billion Pixel Photo of Mount Everest
Can you spot the climbers?
Website: GlacierWorks (via Gizmodo)
This gigapixel image of the Khumbu glacier was captured by David Breashears during the spring of 2012, from the Pumori viewpoint near Mount Everest. The Khumbu Icefall is clearly visible here, and one can easily see the hustle and bustle of Everest Base Camp below.
Click the image to enter gigapixel navigation, then use the controls at the bottom of the screen to zoom and pan.

Have you seen the number of tents at the bottom?? Insane. Look at the snowline for those of you who missed them.

If you look carefully, you can see a group of 3 on the glacier....and a little bit away there's someone who looks like he coming back down....
I like to think the following conversation took place....
3 guys: "Brad, have you got the ropes?"
1 guy: "Er,....I thought one of you were bringing them?"
3 guys: "No, Brad....It was down to you. I guess you better go back and get them"
1 guy: "Oh F*$%!"
